Couple has 3 sets of twins in less than 5 years, but that’s not the craziest part of this story
When an old family friend contacted Carrie and Craig Kosinski and asked them if they could take care of her young twins, they said “yes.”
Carrie and Craig offered to take custody of the cute girls on a trial basis.
But then days became weeks, weeks became months, and soon, the girls were part of the family for good.
Having children had always been a dream for Carrie and Craig, but they had no idea what their journey would end up looking like.
On February 28, 2014, Adalynn and Kenna were born. The twins were delivered by emergency C-section and the Kosinkis got legal guardianship of the girls when they were 3 months old.
After a couple of years raising their adoptive twins, Carrie and Craig heard from their biological mom, who explained that she had another heartbreaking situation on her hands.
She had major problems in her life and was struggling to make everything work. She asked the couple if they would be willing to adopt her two younger children, two-year-old twins Cece and J.J.
The younger twins were Kenna and Adalynn’s biological brother and sister.
Carrie and Craig, from Union Grove, Wisconsin, had to think long and hard about the right thing to do.
They went on to adopt Carrie’s friend’s twins.
A year later, the same friend asked if they’d like to adopt her older set of twins and they said yes.
They are currently in the process of adopting the two sets of twins when Carrie felt strange and realized she needed to go to the doctor.
An ultrasound revealed that she herself was pregnant. In fact, not one but two fetuses appeared on the screen!
Unbelievably, biological twins Karraline and Clarissa were born during week 25 of Carrie’s pregnancy on February 28, 2016, the same date that the other two pairs of twins were born.
The fact that all of Carrie and Craig’s children share the same birthday was a clear sign to the grateful parents that this was meant to happen.
Carrie tells The Journal Times, “God obviously has a sense of humor.”
Carrie gave birth to Karraline and Clarissa via in vitro fertilization during week 25 of Carrie’s pregnancy. Unfortunately, their biological twins had to spend months in neonatal intensive care. But when they finally were allowed to go home, Karraline and Clarissa were healthy and strong.
The fact that all six children came into the world on the same day — Cece and J.J. were born on February 28, 2013; Adalynn and Kenna on February 28, 2014 and Karraline and Clarissa on February 28, 2016 — make Craig and Carrie feel like someone up there had a special plan for their family.
Today, this family is enjoying life, and to see all these beautiful kids grow up must be such a blessing for Carrie and Craig.
While it’s costly to have three sets of twins under one roof, many people in the surrounding community have offered to financial help. Moreover, the fact that all six children came into the world on the same day make Craig and Carrie feel like someone up there had a special plan for their family.
